When you live in a small town in southern Germany, it's not so easy too see Finnish films, or any independent films in general. So the retrospective of the Kaurismaki brothers at the Munich film festival this year was a great opportunity to see more Kaurismaki films. I have seen some films of Aki, but only one or two of Mika. "Honey Baby" was very impressing, it took me to Eastern Europe, to places I have not seen before. The pictures were beautiful and the music fitted perfectly to the atmosphere, which was strange in a nice way, almost like in dream. I liked the actors from different countries, Henry Thomas is very convincing as a musician and the Russian actress Irina Bjorklund is very touching. I hope this film will come to the cinemas, because I would like to see it again.
